Treatment for a Hemangioma & Its Positive Effects

Infants often have hemangiomas; vascular birthmarks made up of blood vessels. Treating a vascular birthmark caused by a systemic anomaly or a disease requires a correct diagnosis of the underlying cause. The doctors at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, Drs Selvam and Nirmala have worked together to treat vascular laser birthmarks for over 20 years. Also, AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, Chennai, is the city's first laser treatment facility.

V-BEAM perfecta, an advanced pulse dye laser introduced to India by Dr Selvam in 2011, is currently the standard gold treatment for hemangioma. Over 11–12 years, AKJ Skin and Laser Centre has helped 100–150 people with vascular birthmarks.

The PDL has many advantages, including:
  • Treating the hemangioma involving benign tumours of blood vessels, and treating the broken blood vessels (telangiectasias) left behind.
  • It helps reduce cell division rate, and prepare the body for further treatment.
  • Safest and least invasive option
  • Promotes wound healing in hemangiomas that have developed an ulcer (if the skin has broken open)
  • Beneficial for diaper-area lesions in particular.

Hemangioma Excision at AKJ Skin and Laser Centre

During the treatment, the doctor uses a laser to destroy the abnormal blood vessels under the skin. To provide the care our patients need, we first discuss their preferences with them and their loved ones. We hope that families will have all the data to make an informed choice about the best course of treatment. When we operate on children, they are put to sleep with general anaesthesia so that we can get the job done.

Children who are not put under general anaesthesia will be given goggles-like eye protection to shield their eyes from the laser light. The procedure will begin after anaesthesia.

During the initial consultation, the doctor will examine and set up your child's first pulsed dye laser treatment. The doctor's first examination of your child won't involve giving them any medication. Many birthmarks require anywhere from four to eight separate surgeries to remove. A gap of one month is maintained between sessions. The doctor will likely use a lower frequency or power setting during the initial treatment to gauge how your child reacts to the laser for the first time. Typically, the birthmark is checked for improvement after the sixth session.

In the operating room, we frequently use a combination of pulsed laser therapy and other treatments for patients with complex vascular syndromes. Possible benefits include fewer hospitalisations and an expedited recovery for your child.

Let us work together to treat your Hemangioma!

Pre Care
Post Care
There are strict guidelines regarding what you can and cannot consume in the hours leading up to a procedure that requires general anaesthesia. The nurse will provide age-appropriate advice on how much and what kind of food and liquids your child should consume.
The laser won't be as effective if you have a suntan because the tan will absorb some of the light. For at least three weeks before treatment, sun avoidance is recommended.
Feeding Instructions
Infants who will be formula-fed may receive their feeding up to 6 hours before their expected arrival time, and infants who will be breastfed may nurse up to 4 hours before their scheduled arrival time.
All solid food and anything other than clear liquids should be avoided after midnight the night before surgery for children older than 12 months.
The following is intended for all kids: Please only administer clear liquids up to 2 hours before arrival. Don't serve anything to eat or drink for the two hours leading up to your arrival.
The laser treatment for hemangiomas is often met with unrealistic expectations for immediate improvement on the part of the patient. It usually takes the procedure about two to three weeks to start showing results. Here is the after-treatment protocol you should stick to:
If your child experiences redness or swelling at the treatment site right after the procedure, you should apply ointment or lotion three times a day for 10 to 14 days.
Those experiencing mild tingling or irritation at the treatment site can benefit from applying a cold compress, which also hastens the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon after diagnosis should a baby undergo treatment for a hemangioma?
Treating a small hemangioma with laser surgery or topical timolol as soon as possible reduces the likelihood of it growing more prominent. Unfortunately, this is often missed until the child needs more invasive treatment. Seeing a doctor as soon as possible is crucial.
How do medical professionals identify a hemangioma?
Diagnosis of capillary hemangiomas is made through a visual inspection by a medical professional. Hemangiomas of the organs are sometimes detectable with imaging techniques like ultrasound.
What sets vascular malformations apart from hemangiomas?
Hemangiomas are not present at birth. They typically appear between the ages of one and four weeks and can keep growing for another nine to twelve months. A process called involution begins in capillary tumours like hemangiomas, causing them to shrink gradually. On the other hand, vascular malformations are present from birth, whether or not they are immediately noticeable. Depending on the specific malformation, they can be made up of vascular or lymphatic channels.
Explain the potential dangers of the pulsed dye laser procedure.

At AKJ Skin and Laser Centre, the doctor and staff will go to great lengths to ensure the safety of your child, including the following:

  • If the laser's intensity is too high, scarring could result. The laser will be set to a low power setting during your child's first treatment to prevent scarring and allow the doctor to monitor your child's reaction.
  • It's possible that the port wine stain won't improve after the first treatment. The doctor will adjust the laser's parameters if this happens during a treatment.
When should I follow up with the doctor after surgery?
Even though it is unusual, you should seek medical attention if the treated area develops a crust, develops into blisters, and bleeds or discharges water.
Is there a chance that hemangioma will return even after surgery?
The time it takes for a hemangioma to fully develop varies from case to case. Between the ages of 6 and 9 months, focal hemangiomas will develop. Regrowth of focal hemangiomas has been observed after halting propranolol or steroids prior to the end of the growth period, but growth further than this time is unusual.
